St. Brigid teachers lose their hair, for a good cause

St. Brigid Catholic Elementary School in Stouffville recently wrapped-up a successful fundraising campaign. As part of the campaign, students were offered a special incentive — four teachers, Mr. Eric Longbothom, Ms. Linda Scanga, Ms. Maryanne Singh, and Ms. Adrienne Kellow would all shave or cut their long hair, and donate it, if fundraising targets were met. With the support of an engaged and generous parent community, the school’s fundraising targets were met. As a result, four lucky students whose names were drawn from a bin of names of students who participated in a previous dance-a-thon, were handed the scissors and cut the teachers’ hair. The hair was donated to 360 Hair which is an organization that makes wigs for children afflicted with cancer.
